The show stars Daniel Radcliffe as J. Pierrepont Finch, with Tammy Blanchard as Hedy La Rue, Christopher J. Hanke as Bud Frump and Rose Hemingway as Rosemary Pilkington. Rob Bartlett will play Twimble/Wally Womper, Mary Faber will play Smitty and Ellen Harvey will play Miss Jones. John Larroquette will appear as J.B. Biggley and the book’s voice will be recorded by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
